Until his death in 1984, Lionel Robbins was one of the world's most influential economic theorists and the foremost British economist of his generation. Appointed to a professorship at the prestigious London School of Economics when only thirty years old, Robbins dominated British economic thought for decades and proved a powerful force in the formulation of post-World War II economic policy.
